Smart, sophisticated, elegant, with class- describing the Capricorn sun sign sounds a lot like an American luxury automobile commercial.
But these are people; natural leaders with a built-in drive to succeed.
There is no way another sign as determined as the Capricorn, who is represented by a mountain goat for their unwavering ability to rely on themselves. Possibly, all alone on top of a mountain.
Ruled by Saturn, the Capricorn cannot help but be ambitious.
Of course, this serves them well. But it is their intelligence, discipline, and patience that get them to where they are going.
As you can tell, this is a pretty dominating sign, but Capricorn is not necessarily an extrovert. It is a feminine sign with qualities of reflection and inner awareness.
In love, the Capricorn is wise and not one to rush things.
They seek security and approach their relationships in the same way that they do everything else: patient, cautious, and diligent.
Below is everything you need to know about which zodiac signs are best and least suited for Capricorn compatibility based on sun signs alone.
For the most accurate description regarding compatibility, it is important to understand your complete natal chart.
The Best Capricorn Compatibility Matches
Capricorn’s are generally the best with their fellow earth signs who are all known to prioritize hard work, career, and family.
The Capricorn tends to work well with two of the sensitive and intelligent water signs as we will see below.
If your Capricorn man also has Venus strongly placed in his chart then I recommend you to also familiarize yourself with the Venus in Capricorn traits here.
Capricorn and Taurus
This is one of the strongest pairings of the zodiac.
If you know a Capricorn and a Taurus in love, then you know that being tied at the soul is not exclusively a water sign thing.
These two will find common ground in just about everything under the sun.
When they are not working themselves to death, they are happily lounging around and enjoying the finer things in life: good food, music, and maybe the outdoors.
Both of these people are often accused of being “too stubborn”.
Nicknamed the goat and the bull respectively, some would say this stereotype is true.
The Capricorn and the Taurus, however, see it as being devoted to their families, career, and each other.
So, if they are stubborn, it is only because they are taking care of the things that they see as good and worthwhile in life.
Both the Capricorn and the Taurus are introverted by nature and will find it most rewarding when they can spend the evening together at home cooking, listening to music, or watching a movie.
They tend to revel in each other’s company. Heavens know they need to relax a little.
The Capricorn is more dominant and driven than the Taurus who does not mind taking it easy occasionally. This is a harmonious blend.
The Capricorn helps the Taurus get things done and in return, the Taurus shows the Capricorn that they can slow down and take care of themselves.
In some ways, the Taurus acts as a “spiritual advisor” to the Capricorn who can be deeply reflective as well.
Capricorn Compatibility With Virgo
Capricorn and Virgo on each other’s team are like having a hand-selected all-star line-up for efficiency.
Together, the Virgo and Capricorn duo is like a well-oiled machine. These two signs have a high level of respect for one another.
They are similar in so many ways, but it is their differences that they admire the most.
Just like the Capricorn, the Virgo is hardworking and practical. These two just get stuff done.
In both earth signs, the Capricorn is more intense and dominant than the sensitive and reserved Virgo, who sweeps the Capricorn off their feet with their orderliness and astonishing attention to detail.
The Virgo can overanalyze anything and everything.
This leads to needless anxiety, but the grounded Capricorn steps in to reel the Virgo back in with ease.
The Virgo is a mutable sign and lets the fixed Capricorn ground some of its nervous energy.
Look, both these signs get a bad rap for being prudish, the Virgo even nicknamed “the virgin”.
But when these two come together, their love life is anything but bland.
Maybe they are both a bit overly cautious, but the two together allow them to open up at their own comfortable pace.
And who knows, what goes on behind closed doors? It could very well be a dynamic sex life.
Capricorn and Scorpio
The Capricorn and the Scorpio are different characters, yet this couple works wonderfully. Both are dominant, driven, and fiercely loyal to their partners in love.
Each will express their traits in vastly different ways, but find common ground with their hobbies, values, and goals.
The Capricorn is rational and analytical while the Scorpio is emotional and intuitive. Both signs have a certain level of awareness of themselves and others.
While driven and dominant, at the end of the day the Capricorn and the Scorpio are introverted and prefer their home base.
This may sound boring to some, but just like Capricorn, Scorpio is intelligent, and the list never runs dry of things for them to do and talk about.
These two signs may appear to be living in different worlds and probably are. But the Scorpio is deep, intuitive, and sentimental and the Capricorn enjoys the finer things in life.
They meet at the crossroads because neither one will be stimulated by anything generic.
The sexual relationship between the two is one of the most dynamic of all the zodiac signs.
There is a special bond between the Capricorn and the Scorpio due to their signs being sextile to each other, which makes Capricorn’s compatibility with Scorpio both dynamic and harmonious.
In the bedroom, the Capricorn can help ground Scorpio’s intensity and in return, Scorpio can open the Capricorn up to new mind-blowing ways of making love that they never thought possible.
Capricorn and Pisces
It is amazing how the most practical sign can come together with the most impractical, the Pisces.
But the truth is, the Capricorn and the Pisces are both sensitive and reflective people.
Their differences only wind up complementing each other rather brilliantly and they will likely stun each other regularly. Both are amazed by each other’s thoughtfulness.
These two signs love to ask questions, learn new things, and look out for friends and family.
The Pisces help out their loved ones emotionally and spiritually, while the Capricorn may do this in ways that are more material or physical.
Capricorn with Pisces does not end there. Both the Capricorn and the Pisces are intellectual signs, which further leads to a good compatibility connection between these two.
If you factor in Pisces’ intuition, imagination, and creativity, this pair will never run dry of conversations and new things to try out.
It is the trust and devotion that fuels this relationship. Both are looking to bond with someone emotionally and love that person wholeheartedly. Not to mention that the intimacy between the two is off the charts.
The Pisces’ empathy and intuition are matched by none in the zodiac and they know precisely what their Capricorn partner needs and how to deliver.
You would think some of the Pisces ways would drive the Capricorn crazy: escapism, fantasy, and poor financial management- this is not always the case, to be clear.
Pisces is a mutable sign, the most adaptable in the entire zodiac.
The Pisces remain open and teachable and will likely look up to the practically wise Capricorn when it comes to these real-world dealings.
Capricorn Compatibility – Worst Matches
Some signs are not a good match for the Capricorn and their fixed natures. These are the signs that Capricorn generally is less suited to.
Capricorn Compatibility With Aquarius
In all honesty, these two do not make a great pair.
The Capricorn adheres to norms and traditions while the Aquarius seeks to tear them down. In way of values, these two signs share little if nothing in common at all.
The Aquarius is constantly playing around with new ideas and new ways of being while the Capricorn prefers stability and familiarity.
The result: The Aquarius will likely find the Capricorn boring and stiff and the Capricorn will see the Aquarius as out of control and bringing too much chaos into the relationship.
In all likeliness, the Capricorn will recognize right off the bat that their ideals are too different.
If they get into a relationship, however, it is common that the Capricorn pulls out all of their hair and leaves before the stress brought by the off-beat Aquarius becomes too much for them to handle.
Capricorn and Gemini
The Gemini is an air sign ruled by thought, intellectually powerful with a need for expansion and exploration. This does not fare well with Capricorn’s sensibility at all.
Gemini is a communicative sign, so they need to vocalize their powerful ideas which is important to them.
This will drive the Capricorn nuts, who much prefers to use established and proven effective ideas (and then to put them to use in the most practical manner possible).
Gemini is happy-go-lucky, mutable, and adaptable.
They are free with thought, speech, and movement. The Capricorn is more reserved and focused, which the Gemini will likely see as someone who is being “too serious”.
It is not like the traits of these two signs will terrorize each other. They may even admire many things about each other, possibly coming together in a relationship.
But at the end of the day, the lifestyle wants, and needs of the two sun signs will be just far apart enough to keep anything real or concrete from truly lasting, which does not fare well for the compatibility between these two zodiac signs.
Capricorn and Sagittarius
Capricorn together with the free-spirited Sagittarius is not the greatest of all matches.
The way that the Sagittarius impulsively plunges right into new things regularly can be frightening to the cautious, light-treading Capricorn.
It is because of things like this that the stability and trust in this sun sign relationship will be all but none.
Ruled by Jupiter, Sagittarius represents travel and exploration. This goes against the traditional Capricorn’s need to plant roots and focus primarily on their career and family.
The fiery and extroverted Sagittarius needs to be on the go constantly, preferably surrounded by others. And, you know, the Capricorn is a famous homebody.
Needless to say, Capricorn coupled with Sagittarius offers little in the way of anything beneficial to either party involved.
Capricorn and Aries
Aries is an explosive fire sign. The Capricorn just happens to be a grounded earth element. When these two worlds collide, there is a high probability for a natural disaster to occur.
Saying that Capricorn is a mature and practical person may be an understatement. They typically view the Aries as being too childish for their taste.
This does make some sense if you look at it this way: Aries is the first sign in the zodiac, the youngest of the bunch. The only similarity that these two signs share is their world-renowned stubbornness.
Which could pan out well, I guess, if it were not for their mismatch of values.
The only thing that this similarity ends up offering is unnecessary conflicts between the two at almost every turn. Romantically speaking, each would be better off with somebody else.
Aries is ruled by Mars which represents passion, they are stereotyped as impulsive. Conversely, Capricorn is likely to take just about everything into account before they decide anything.
Maybe the Aries is just a daredevil, but the Capricorn sees their behavior as reckless.
The Capricorn Man
The Capricorn man is ambitious. Likely, he is the breadwinner; an immaculately kept gentleman dressed in a business suit. Even if he is not dressed to the nines, his mind most certainly is.
To the ladies, this man is a gem because he has his stuff together and possesses many of the desirable traits that they try to nail down in a man. But it is not that simple.
This stubborn goat can be difficult to keep a relationship, much else enter into one with, if you do not balance out his temperament and share his values.
The earth sign of Capricorn has feminine qualities associated with it, but this does not mean the Capricorn man is an effeminate one by any means. He is dominant and decisive.
The yin qualities of the sign simply point to the fact that he is wired to be more reflective and internal. He is receptive and aware of himself and others.
So, while driven to succeed, he also cares a lot about those around him.
In love, the Capricorn man is known to win his mate over by showing them he has himself in check.
He shows his potential love interests that he is competent and stable. Because of this, the Capricorn man has been called “prude” and “cold”.
But to him, it is a highly sophisticated vetting system he uses to ensure they are the right one.
Capricorn Man Relationship Compatibility
The Capricorn man looks for loyalty and a partner who is in it for the long haul. He is smart, goal-oriented, and somewhat of an introvert.
The Capricorn man needs a mate who shares the same values and interests as him. Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, and Pisces all make for good Capricorn relationship compatibility.
If you are seeing a Capricorn man but you are not sure of his true feelings for you, then I recommend you read our article here to discover the Capricorn man in love signs.
Capricorn Man Sexual Compatibility
The Capricorn man has been called a prude. The way that I understand it is that he is a bit cautious and likes to take things slowly, which is fine.
Capricorn is known to open up more to their intimate partner as time goes on. It is important to them that they are with somebody they are bonded with.
That is why the best sexual partners for the Capricorn man are Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, and Pisces.
The Capricorn Woman
The Capricorn woman has a graceful essence about her. She is stylish but not flashy.
Capricorn woman is known to sport a timeless elegance in the way that she dresses, carries herself, and even in how she treats others.
She is a career woman and because of her astrological blessings, more-than-likely a successful one.
The woman born under the zodiac sign of Capricorn is sophisticated and intelligent. She does not enter into relationships lightly.
When choosing a partner, she is wise. But once settled in with a partner, she is fully devoted to them.
She is grounded and stable in all ways and not one to cheat or play games, since she is not shy about what she wants and going for it, she is not known to waste her partner’s time.
Capricorn Woman Relationship Compatibility
The Capricorn woman seeks someone who can keep up with her pace.
The more dominant woman of the earth signs, she looks for somebody as driven and ambitious as herself, yet somebody who she can spend evenings at home with and possibly go fully-in into a family together.
Connecting emotionally with her lover is a must.
Capricorn woman compatibility works best with Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, and Pisces.
Capricorn Woman Sexual Compatibility
The Capricorn woman is much freer in the bedroom than she lets on to.
With her carefully hand-selected partner, one who she can trust, the Capricorn woman is a powerful lover who is more than happy to open up.
Her best sexual matches are with Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, and Pisces.
Capricorn Compatibility – Final Thoughts
The Capricorn is an intelligent and reflective person with a depth that most only get a glimpse at. The world sees them as stubborn traditionalists only concerned only with success.
Likely, the Capricorn needs a mate on the more sensitive side, someone who can offer them support when self-reliance becomes too much to bear, and who can help them to get in touch with their emotional and spiritual side.
Introverted yet determined, the zodiac sign of Capricorn works best with sun signs who possess similar values, goals, and intelligence.
To hang out with a goat, you have to have sophistication, humor, and wit.
Capricorn compatibility is best with their fellow earth signs, Taurus and Virgo, who are a bit more sensitive and spiritual than the Capricorn, who is usually in full drive non-stop pursuing their goals.
Another great balance for the Capricorn is the water signs of Scorpio and Pisces.
Both intelligent, sensitive, and introspective signs connect with the Capricorn on a deep level and who seem to never run out of shared interests and conversations.
